On my early morning walk today I was surprised to see that spring was extremely short this year: the vegetation on Mont Carmel looks almost as in summer.
I used a walking stick that dubs as a mono-pod to help keeping the camera steady and flash was bounced to help having a bit of details in the shade too.

Hi Love your snail. We don't have these guys in my part of the world but they are all over our daughter's front yard - grandson loves to play with them. So I can appreciate your effort to capture that one. Nice tones on the head and shell - flash did a good job here.

Dear Tibi,
very interesting flash work and total lighting, like using some lumps. perhaps the interval between the snail and you, and 125mm FL are very effective to express the feeling of light and shadow in this macro picture.
and sharp leaves and strings of spider make wonder space.
thank you,

Hi Tibi,
Very good macro,good light,congratulation.
Best regards,

Hello Tibi,

This is such an interesting shot!
I like the details of the body, the antennae and the spider's web.
The light reflecting on the head and the cobweb adds an interesting touch.

The shell is a little soft. I did try to see if it could be improved but since you don't allow w/s, I will explain what I did. Select the shell with magic wand, unsharp mask at radius 2, 76%. The improvement was quite noticeable.

Have a lovely Suinday,
Bev :-)
Many thanks for your comments on 'Welcome to the Nursery'.

Hello Tibi. Nicely closed on this snail. Beautiful shot with the simple leaf against the dark background. Good sharpness and clarity and well done. Regards. Jusni

Szia Tibi!

Micsoda rohanas! Kedves kep, jo beallitas. Picit eletlen.

Legy jo!


Szia Tibi!

Fantaszikus a megvilágítás, pont a hétvégén fényképeztem egy csigát én is, de a fej része - mivel vakuznom kellett - nem lett túl ízléses hogy finoman fogalmazzak. Nálad viszont határozottan jól mutat, bár a mélységélesség még f22 mellett is picit kicsi sajnos. Én harmonika kihuzattal makrózok, viszonylag normális dof érhető el vele ilyen körüli rekesszel.
Mindegy, a lényeg hogy a képed gyönyörű lett, a csiga nagyon jól megvilágított, a levél is jól néz ki és a csillogó szálak, főleg a felső amelyik rezeg, külön élményt nyújtanak!

Hi Tibi, I like the way you did the lighting and presented in black background. The deatils are there but I wish teh focus could be in its body, cheers, ari
